Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehab need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
